Overcoming Fukushima’s Nuclear Crisis - Creating Nuclear Power Free Asia Pacific region

30th June 2011, Seoul, South Korea- Several months after the Fukushima nuclear disaster, we are beginning to get a sense of the likely long-term impacts. Radiation has spread across much of the northern hemisphere and parts of the southern hemisphere. Japan's Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency estimates the radioactive release at 770,000 terabecquerels in the first week of the crisis. Total radiation releases will probably fall somewhere between 10−40% of those from the 1986 Chernobyl disaster. Radiation releases have not been stopped and will continue for some months.
